has anyone tried Lumina?
Are there any rumors about Lumina and debian?
would Lumina be lighter than lxqt and/or trinity?
That's an alpha-versioned, BSD-only desktop environment for the time being. I would say, that it's even PC-BSD-only. It would probably get naturally ported into Debian in some time (PC-BSD -> FreeBSD -> Debian kFreeBSD -> Debian GNU/Linux... that's the official path, I guess), but kFreeBSD version of Debian got axed a few weeks ago (not an official arch release anymore), so it really might take awhile.
As for us porting it into Sparky: there's a lot of reasons for NOT doing that:
- it's an alpha version
- it's BSD-only
- manual porting to Linux would take some time and I guess I'm pretty much the only person on the team that can do it right now (hope I'm wrong with that last part )
- we still have a lot of work with our current tools (the installer needs fixing and completing of the EFI32 support, the ISO generation process needs a bit of automation, but I've got it almost covered)
Other than that it will probably be available in Sparky as soon as it reached Debian Testing.
